The service was timely and friendly. The crab bake was pretty decent...not quite "Maryland quality" considering how much they refer to Maryland on the menu.

If you go to MJs, get the crab cakes! I've had some other items from the menu, but the crab cakes keep me returning any time I'm in the area.

The food and atmosphere are great, with daily specials worth looking at.... I was there for lunch and the wait staff were also very helpful. The steak burger is worth the trip alone.

Would not service my group of 4 because I was allergic to crab. Never heard that excuse. Been served in many restaurants that serviced crab meat. Evidently their kitchen is not very well cleaned because they use the excuse that everything they served was contimated by crab.

MJ's was well reviewed on Yelp and we agree. Brittany was our server and was attentive, but not overbearing. We ate 4 dozen raw oysters, shrimp and drank Brittany's recommendations on beer, which were all great. My mother-in-law ordered fried shrimp and they were probably the best we've ever tasted.

We enjoyed our first visit, so we brought back our entire group (12) the next day. Brittany had us setup and ready to go. We have a diverse group, so we were not easy to wait on. Brittany did great!

I would recommend MJ's highly!
